We’ve seen a LOT of Star Wars news released recently. We got more information about the release of season three of The Mandalorian, a sneak peek at new merchandise coming to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and even seen new characters roaming around Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland!
If that’s still not enough Star Wars for you, then you need to check out the new Star Wars cars (yes, cars) from Volkswagen!
Volkswagen has partnered up with designers at Lucasfilm to create two new vehicles inspired by the new Disney+ show Obi-Wan Kenobi. Volkswagen debuted these new designs as part of Star Wars Celebration 2022.
The vehicle used is the ID. Buzz, which is a Volkswagen vehicle that is currently only available for the European market with an American release coming in 2023.
Volkswagen released two Star Wars versions of the car: The Light Side and The Dark Side. These are one-of-a-kind showcars that were created in collaboration with Lucasfilm.
The Dark Side relies heavily on black and red in its style, mixing a matte black color on part of the car with a shiny black color on the lower area. There are also red designs throughout that truly pop against that black background.
It even has red underbody lighting to really make it stand out and special rims.
The Light Side car features white and blue all over the vehicle. The shiny chrome on part of the car represents the droids and spaceships from Star Wars, while the blue line represents Obi-Wan’s lightsaber.
The decal on the back windows of the Light Side cars is the the symbol for the Jedi Order.
And there are, again, some special rims!
“In close collaboration with Lucasfilm, we combine the timeless and functional design of the ID. Buzz with the fascinatingly detailed world of Obi-Wan Kenobi,” said Jozef Kabaň, Head of Design for Volkswagen. Kabaň also said the new vehicles are bringing together two icons: Star Wars and the VW Bus.
